I'm not going to list absolute favorites, I'm bad at ranking, so I'm going to expand the list with 10 additional great scenes I love:

1. Cube - the scene with the razor wire
2. Silence of the Lambs - the girl looks up the well and sees the fingernails embedded in the rock
3. 1408 - the clock resets to 60:00 the radio starts playing "we've only just begun" (and I thought that song was creepy before)
4. Hour of the Wolf - Johan is attacked by the little boy
5. Carnival of Souls - the Masquerade
6. Twin Peaks - the Man from Another Place is dancing in the Black Lodge
7. The Ring - The girl climbs up the well
8. Whispering Corridors - The missing student "jumps" from one end of the hall to right in front of the heroine

http://retrocrush.buzznet.com/scary/scariest.html I found this site which seems pretty good. 8 out of 10 of my scenes made the list. The Spiderwalk scene from "The Exorcist" didn't make it, which can only be because the scene was originally deleted. " Bram Stoker's Dracula "scene with Lucy as the "Lady in White" didn't make it either, which I think is a mistake.
